uncle cheng special beef at section 17, pj...

Another ancient post. Should have posted this about 6 months ago. Uncle Cheng's Special Beef Noodle does not really need an introduction. Many floggers have already written about this place and a simple Google search will yield dozens of reviews.

Many people might struggle to find this place as its located deep within Section 17, PJ. Although with the popularity of 6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak, My Elephant and Food Foundary am sure you'll find ya way somehow. ;)

Everything sold by Julian (son of the original Uncle Cheng) are beef related. You have beef noodles (dry or soup), beef tenderloin (in broth), mixed beef (tripe, meatballs, beef slices in broth), dry beef slices and even bone marrow soup. The latter of the 2 are rather special so they aren't available daily and runs out real fast if they do! :(

Unfortunately I have only tried their beef noodles (both dry and soup) and boy are they yummy! The meat slices are juicy and tender while the beef ball is nice and springy. I remember trying beef noodles in Seremban where the sauce was over powering but Uncle Cheng's is just nice. Doesn't give you that jelak feeling. I also like the sprinkle of preserved cabbage and peanuts. Gives a nice crunch and break of taste from the beefy contents.

However if you like something soupy you can always go for the beef soup. The broth used is full of flavor and smells heavenly. Even the dry variety gets a bowl of it and without fail it will be slurped till the last drop! :D

This is the best place to get my fix of beef noodles. Always consistent and Julian is a very friendly chap. More than willing to chit chat. Give this place a try if you are in the vicinity. You won't walk away disappointed.
